Add To Plan

Arriving at the pier by tender, you'll board your coach for a lovely drive through the city's residential districts. This famous South American seaside resort is the playground of the regional jet set and a world renowned site of many film festivals and international conferences. Often referred to as the St. Tropez of Uruguay, this popular resort area, with its miles of pristine beaches, is an international favorite. One of the more interesting features of Punta Del Este is that visitors can actually see the sun rise and set in the same waters due to its location on a peninsula that extends into the ocean.

Your tour will first take you along the magnificent beach areas of Playa Mansa and Playa Brava Portezuelo and then through the tree-lined residential districts of San Rafael, Cantegrill and Beverly Hills, where you can see many of the city's beautiful mansions and well-tended private gardens. Your route also passes by the Tudor-styled San Rafael Casino. A brief photo stop will be made at Punta Ballena where you'll find a wonderful panoramic view of the peninsula and Casapueblo.

Traveling on, you'll make your way to La Pataia, a quaint local farm. You'll be treated to a taste of the traditional crepe, Panqueque de Dulce de Leche and a cup of chocolate. At the conclusion of your visit at Lapataia, your coach will return you to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1 hour of walking. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
